BAE Systems’ Hawk is becoming India’s main advanced jet trainer: In 2004 the IAF ordered 66 Hawk Mk 132s, another 40 in 2010, and the Indian Navy 17.

Despite some public wrangling over spares and support, the IAF has requested 20 more to replace the elderly HJT-16 Kiran jets of the Surya Kiran display team. HAL builds the Hawk under license; Indian sources report another 40 Hawks may yet be required.
